The new Hyundai i40 saloon will cost from £17,395 when it hits UK showrooms at the beginning of January 2012.
Following the recent release of the estate version, the new saloon “shares the same qualities found in the i40 Tourer - offering outstanding levels of fuel-efficiency, comfort, quality, and a high level of standard equipment all at an accessible price,” according to Hyundai’s UK MD Tony Whitehorn.
The new saloon is available with the Touring’s three main trim levels - Active, Style and Premium – available with a choice of two engines, including the 1.6-litre Gdi Blue Drive or the 1.7-litre CRDi in 113bhp or 134bhp guises.
Standard features across the range include 16-inch alloys, Bluetooth and electric heated door mirrors with integrated LED indicators.
Mid-spec Style models cost from £19,195 for the smaller diesel, rising to £22,495 for the 134bhp automatic 1.7-litre diesel variant. As standard, touch-screen satellite navigation with rear-view camera, front and rear parking sensors and cruise control are included.
Hyundai’s flagship Premium models are available with the 134bhp engine only and prices start from £23,395, climbing to £24,895 when mated to the auto ’box. Features include leather seats, a panoramic roof and keyless entry.
